Update of the Day: So, my weekend basically went nothing like planned. I was going to be productive, use the cordless drill I borrowed from James (and bits borrowed from Corey) and get my water filter and new thermostat installed. Didn’t happen . . . I really need to get that done tonight and return those to them. Friday night plans didn’t happen as they were supposed to, I couldn’t get in touch with anyone fun to do something, so I went out and saw Fast and Furious. While certainly not a cinematic masterpiece, it was a fun, enjoyable film. I don’t really understand why it’s reviewing so badly with the general public. Some fun stunts, fun driving . . . not as many awesome cars and car mods, but more eye candy than Tokyo Drift had. Go in to this movie expecting a fun film experience without thinking about it too deeply, and I think you’ll be entertained.
Later that night moving into Saturday morning, I ended up chatting (and then later texting) with a woman in Odessa for hours. I really want to meet this woman, largely to see if she’s all that she’s represented herself as. Since I was up so late Saturday morning, I slept quite late, and after I finally got up and moving and showered, shaved, dressed, etc., went out to my Dad’s for a visit, because my Aunt Kathy was in town for the weekend. I helped my dad try to work on updating her computer (she boxed up and brought the entire thing over), and in the process of trying to install Windows XP SP3, things went FUBAR. I think Norton Internet Security is to blame. It ended up in this endless reboot cycle where Windows would do the “oh crap, we didn’t start successfully last time, what do you want to do?” and no matter what option we chose (couldn’t even get into Safe Mode more than once) it would fail and restart again. Joy. That ate up hours Saturday night, I left my dad’s after midnight, and it’s still not properly functional.
Sunday . . . after a late start, I went out shopping for a few things. Hit JC Penneys and capitalized on this awesome sale they had going yesterday, and got my bathroom plans -mostly- taken care of. Picked up 4 bath towels, 2 hand towels (they were out of wash rags in the same color), and a bath rug for $19. I think I’m going to go back and pick up another rug as well as try to get the same Royal Red wash rags to match. I also picked up 2 awesome Sealy pillows on the cheap there. After that, I went to Academy Sports and committed financially to the whole “ok, let’s add regular exercise” concept. Too much money spent on some workout clothes.
I finally hit 78 last night in WoW, 2 more (long) levels to get to 80 (which I should have been at, oh, 3 1/2 weeks ago), then I can try to get gimpily geared up as quick as possible to rejoin Warfare in raiding. I’m a little mixed on that, I hope getting with the guild in raids will re-inspire my love for the game, because just right now working on grinding my Warlock up to 80 I’m just not feeling it like I used to. I’m not sure if it’s just not being able to raid with my guildmates, or if other . . . interests and diversions . . . are more appealing now.

Quote of the Day:
“My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day’s a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by
That first step you take is the longest stride” – If Today was Your Last Day, by Nickelback
